British General Election: Theresa May’s gamble that didn’t pay off

Theresa May, the British Prime Minister who narrowly survived the general election on Thursday, is walking a tight rope at present, while knowing very well that knives are out for her and a challenge could arise at any time against the leader of the Conservative Party – and her premiership.

President Trump’s Trip to Europe: New Alpha Male in Town

Having completed a very successful diplomatic endeavour in the Middle East with his reputation for being a deal maker intact, President Trump visited the Vatican, Brussels and Italy in that order to wind up his 9-day, first-ever foreign trip as the leader of the US.

The French Election 2017:

The old cliché that there is a woman behind every successful man, is an evolving one: those who take it as gospel truth, often cite the statistics in support of the saying; those who are dead against it, on the other hand, believe it is because women do not run behind unsuccessful men; then there are men, for instance, like Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian prime minister, who throughout his active political life implied there is, in fact, not just one, but a tribe of them behind every successful man.

Nuclear Deterrence: a meaningless short-cut to complacency?

The short-lived supremacy enjoyed by the United States from 1945 to 1949, owing to its possession of nuclear weapons, was almost on a par with the caveman, who first invented a spear.

Trump vs Putin: the show of strength in the Syrian theatre

President Trump and President Putin, after all, are not very good friends, despite what we had been hearing during the presidential election campaign to the contrary, because friends normally are not engaged in things that lead to mutual embarrassment in the full glare of global publicity.

Falcon 9: SpaceX makes history with relaunch of a rocket

The launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 somewhat disappointed those who recently became Samsung converts, in search of a credible alternative to Apple’s iPhone, while watching the event live online: the changes were just evolutionary; it is neither revolutionary nor a game changer.
